"The selections recapture the drama and counter-cultural nature of becoming a Christian and creating a community that stood out from the crowd...This collection offers easy access to early Christianity's daily life."-The Princeton Seminary Bulletin
"This is a most judicious and perceptive collection. No existing selection of Patristic material has such focus. It will provide an invaluable textbook, and will stimulate discussion of how contemporary Christians may learn from the ancient Church."-Iain Torrance,author of Christology after Chalcedon
